I have a 1991 rx7 convertible, 48k miles, in excellant condition. Never beat. Very well cared for. It just started leaking oil last summer (2005). The leak seems to be in the very front of the engine. After it warms up a bit and then you look underneath, a fairly steady stream of oil is visible. Any advise?

I would agree that you should have a real technician look at it. It would be best if that tech was familiar with rotary engines. Sounds like you may have an oil line leak, timing cover leak, or oil metering pump leak.

P.S. I wouldn't try looking for a rocket cover leak.

Take it back to mazda and get a rotary certified tech to look at it. Thats the safest thing to do.
